Some information on Languedoc!!

As usual, our good friend Chris Kissick aka the Winedoctor has some useful info on his termendous website. Lots of fun clicking around..........

I am sure there are some other terrific sites for reference.

(edit) Here is a good page on Pic St Loup with maps and top estates.......

I should perhaps add that there are two Vins de Pays in this area, namely de l`Herault and the huge d`Oc. Looking at my Alberta Liquor Control Board website, there are not too many choices for Pic St Loup and what there is out there is on special allocation. Hopefully there is better access for those across the border!!

Lo and behold, they have a Pic St Loup at the Portsmouth Traffic Circle state store. Will pick it up tomorrow.

I just posted on Clavel Copa Santa, which I haven't seen for a while so I googled it to see if it is still around. I found a really nice piece suggesting several wines we might want to try, from our own Geo t of Gang-of-pour fame. Check it out at
